Shadow Shadow Shade, formerly known as Afternoons, a side project of the band Irving, is set to release it’s self-titled debut album on October 5th. In the meantime, they have released a short film entitled “White Horse” that essentially melds three songs from the new album into a video trilogy.

Directed by Michael Graham and starring Jason Ritter and Anna Wilson, “White Horse” is an epic, post-apocalyptic saga that clocks in at over 17 minutes. It’s an ambitious idea that combines the songs and images well—and may just require a few viewings to take it all in.

The band will be playing a handful of October dates on the West Coast:

October 8 - Santa Cruz, CA at the Rio Theater
October 10 - Portland, OR at Mississippi Studios
October 11 - Seattle, WA at The High Dive
October 13 - San Francisco, CA at Red Devil Lounge
October 14 - Los Angeles, CA at Echoplex (Record Release Party)
October 15 - San Diego, CA at Soda Bar
